ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – State health officials warned residents of southeastern Minnesota about possible exposure to measles.
The Minnesota Department of Health learned this week that a Minnesota resident who did not have confirmed measles traveled through Minnesota from another state.
According to the department, people may have been exposed to measles on April 13 at a McDonald's on Main Street in Winona and on April 16 at the Freeborn County Co-op gas station in Albert Read
Schultz tells the Star Tribune that the infected person was from Missouri.
Health officials in western Wisconsin and Iowa also warn people about possible recent exposure to measles.
The symptoms of measles include high fever, cough, runny nose, red, watery eyes, and a rash. The disease can spread when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
